I have always wanted to help people and to help them better their lives, but I never could figure out how I could make that passion a reality, until the day I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety at age eleven. After that rough period in life, I learned how I could help other people. I could listen to them and try to help them better understand themselves. Life is much easier for a person when they have people who believe in them like a psychologist or therapist. My college plan would be to earn a bachelor, and master degree in Psychology to become a Behavior Analyst. After earning a bachelor degree, I would pursue a certification to be a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst. After obtaining a Certification to be a Assistant Behavior

I punched in the gate code and began driving down the dirt road; galloping horses roamed the 8 acre astonishing grounds. The commentaries of prior professors flew nearby like an old cartoon that just got whacked in the head and had birds flying around. Find a supervisor who will give you your hours and help you grow, therapy needs to be engaging, change the scenery or choose an ethical work place!

I love the idea of being challenged by new, real world experiences in speech-language pathology, and it is important to me that I continue to give back to my community. I know that The University of Texas Communication Speech Disorders program will help me in achieving these goals beyond what any other
At the beginning of my senior year in high school, I was still having trouble deciding what I wanted to do with my life. My mom, who works as a COTA in nursing homes, always pushed me towards nursing or physical therapy. Neither occupation interested me, nursing was too broad of a topic for me to handle and physical therapy seemed too difficult. A friend of mine brought up Speech-Language Pathology one day, a term I was unfamiliar with. I researched the strange word “pathology” and was surprised that I found the profession interesting. I conducted a PowerPoint on this career in my writing class, shortly after my interest in Speech-Pathology began. After I gave my presentation, there was no doubt
I first discovered speech-language pathology back when I was in high school, in a very unexpected way. I was talking with my grandmother, who had told me she received her Masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology after my father was born. My father has had hearing aids since the age of five, and had to continuously attend speech therapy while growing up. My grandmother told me stories of how she would sit with my father every night, away from his six other siblings, with the lights off and talk to him. She would say words to him, which he would then have to repeat back to her, without relying on his normal trick of reading lips. After hearing these stories and learning more about the field, I was intrigued and hooked.
As a first-year student, the struggle of finding a future career path was evident in my life. I delved into Speech Language Pathology through attending a Kearney Student
The career that fascinates me and what I plan to be when Im older, is a Dental Hygienist. A dental hygienist is a stressful job, but it helps a lot of people. You are helping people get better teeth and even look better, because when people have straight pretty teeth, they seem to have an upgrade in their looks. I haven’t always wanted to be a dental hygienist, I had many other career choices. But, something about making people smile when I’m the reason they look good doing it makes me happy.
I have been lucky enough to have been taught by some truly inspirational teachers and am aware of the effect they have had on my life and the choices I have made subsequently. My own passion for working with young children extends from my desire to emulate these role models and perform the same inspirational function in the lives of my students.
The career the most interests me is Dental Hygiene. After high school, I plan to attend a two year college studying Dental Hygiene. This career interests me the most because I work well with people and it does not require much schooling. I feel as if I would do very well as a Dental Hygienist because they have selective hours. Another reason this career interest me is that you can work up to make pretty good money for little hours that you would be working. I did some research on all jobs that deal with dental and strongly considered Dental Assisting. Considering, that I just would like to have the simpler job by just cleaning teeth, I chose Dental Hygiene.
CI: HOW MY PAST AND PRESENT LIFE EXPERIENCES HAVE HELPED CREATE A FUTURE GOAL OF BECOMING A SPEECH THERAPIST.
I have a wealth of experience and knowledge that make me a highly qualified candidate. I have worked for over twenty years as a speech therapy assistant, and began working in the schools a few years ago. Since working in the schools, I decided that I want to become a teacher. I have become recently certified through ABCTE for Elementary Education and Special Education, and I am waiting to receive my Idaho license.
Chris and Jasmin Smith (age 45 and 47) are seeking financial guidance on how to achieve their financial goals which includes: managing their cash flow and debt levels, providing financial assistance for their two children (Aiden and Jalen), and fund or maintain their retirement accounts. The Smith family would also like understanding of what steps can be taken to pay off their debt. The Smith family previously lived in McLean, Virginia but due to the housing crisis of 2008 they decided to do a short sell on their home because they were upside down on their mortgage. Due to financial situations, they moved to Portsmouth, Virginia which is a more affordable part of the state. The Smith’s realized their savings had been depleted due to the short sale on their home they could not afford a down payment on a house in Portsmouth. Now, the family rents a home for $1,500 per month.
One career field that I am interested in is pharmacy. I believe that pharmacy would be a good field for me because my mother is a pharmacy technician and since my mom would study medicine I would sit beside her and she would help me learn some things about pharmacy and medicine. Since then, I have always thought of pharmacy as a possible career choice. I believe that my home environment was a major influence for me to choose this a possible future career.
